Country Village download

Flower Soft's newest download features 2 country scenes by artist Rikey Austin. The download comes in pdf format, with 3 sheets of digital paper, and 2 sheets of images that correspond to Spellbinders dies. Here's what you get in the download, which is priced at $3.99... Here are a couple of cards I made with the images - you know how I love to color, so it's a big step for me to work with something 'print and go', but this was fun! All the work was done for me and I was free to embellish... of course I had to add my own touch to it, so I deepened the shadows with a Prismacolor pencil and some OMS, sponged the edges, and stamped around the edge with a Porcelain Crackle stamp (Impression Obsession). On both cards, I also trimmed around one side of the door so it could 'open', then popped it up with foam tape underneath.

On this card the Flower Soft colors I used are Lavender and Sage. Isn't that wisteria vine gorgeous?!
On the second card I used Sage, Ivory, Sweet Pea, and some Ivory that I dyed with Bisque chalk ink (Colorbox).
The windows are colored using a clear glaze pen (Sakura).
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the download - would you use precolored images?

FYI, Flower Soft is running a special through Splitcoast right now - if you purchase the 4 new Ultrafine Colors, you will receive a free stamp set (a wheelbarrow, which you can top with a variety of different stamp 'fillers'). You can click here to view the offer, which runs through 11/17.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
